Demand For Space At
Bauma Again Very High
Following the closure for applications to exhibit at the next Bauma in Munich 2016, it is clear that demand for exhibition space is again very high.
The upcoming edition (April 11 to 17, 2016) of the world's leading trade fair for construction machinery, building material machines, mining machines, construction vehicles and construction equipment will take up all the available space - a total of 605,000 m² of space - at the Messe München exhibition a few kilometres aways from the city centre.
Already, at this point in time, almost 3,000 exhibitors from over 50 countries have applied to take part.
Just how important the event is to the international building and construction machinery sector is reflected in the number of international country pavilions that are being organized.
Nine countries in all are putting on dedicated presentations: Brazil, China, Czech Republic, France, Great Britain, Italy, Korea, Northern Ireland, and the US.
The top ten countries of origin among the exhibitors are as follows (after Germany, as per current applications status): Italy, Turkey, the Netherlands, Spain, UK, US, Austria, France, Sweden and Switzerland.
Klaus Dittrich, Chairman and CEO of Messe München, is very satisfied:
The response from the exhibitors and the high level of demand for space are truly amazing.
But Dittrich is also very aware of just what problems this brings:
Of course we want to give as many companies as possible the chance to present at bauma. Yet because of this high level of demand, we will unfortunately not be able to meet all requests for space and participation.
Another Success Story
Already it is clear that the success story of Bauma is set to continue. The last event - with a total of 3,421 exhibitors from 57 countries and 535,065 visitors from over 200 countries - broke all previous records.
With the global economies beginning to recover, there is every reason to expect that visitor numbers will be even higher this time round.
